Cosplay at CANCON 2014

Before the internet existed lonely Canberra nerds had to go to CanCon to discover to our delight that there were human females who shared our interests.

It’s hard to explain today just how many suicides that would have prevented.

Having in the intervening years gone heavy on the male-centric table top war games we see they’re having a Cosplay competition which should bring some diversity to the crowds.

Are you Secretly ‘Victor Von Kraken’ Master of the Steam Walker Leviathan or Perhaps ‘Thordar the Red’ Scourge of the Kings and wizards, Do you have the ‘Fantastic Four’™ on Speed dial or do you just like to get your Kamehameha on.

Either way come to CANCON and let you imagination run free in the

CANCON 2014 Cosplay Competition

Enter into one of the six available categories

— Steampunk
— Sci Fi
— Fantasy
— Anime / Japanese Video Games
— Gaming / Western Video Games
— Comic Book / Western Animation

There will Trophies and awards available in both the skit completion and the ‘The Peoples Choice Award’ chosen by those attending CANCON

More power to them.

What’s Your opinion?

Any idea what the poster girl is dressing up as?

Tifa Lockhart from FF?

I couldn’t pick it, but Google suggests it is Black Widow (the belt buckle is the giveaway).

Nah, she’s supposed to be either Norma Snockers, or Gloria Stitz.

And this thread enacts exactly why some women feel uncomfortable with the whole gaming world.

Love the illustration, a fanboy’s (wet) dream Unfortunately the realty will be two spotty girls dressed as anime cats and a couple of Gothapotomuses.

Two words: Jessica Nigiri.

Three words; “This is Canberra”.

Weird… after reading the headline I assumed this would have been written by Barcham

There was a very disturbing episode of CSI http://www.tv.com/shows/csi-crime-scene-investigation/fur-and-loathing-273258/ in which they gradually learned more and more about a club where people dressed up as furry animals to get it on with each other. Only trouble was, one very feminine cat was actually a man inside the costume, unknown to all the folk around him. And that wasn’t even half of the disturbing nature of the plot.

But Canberra isn’t Las Veqas.

I agree….and a couple or herd is called Gothopotomi when there is more than one Gothapotomus.

Clearly a ignorant tea bag and more than likely a idiot.

Good stuff, the Impact Comics gig was pretty popular, this event brings people from interstate, who are quite well behaved and responsible as well. Shame Shame the local council hasnt picked up on this (though Im sure its been brought to their attention) over the last 25+ years.

I want to go dressed as Gir from Invader Zim, failing that…..JTHM.
